NHL & NHLPA Unveil ?Declaration of Principles?, Get Shoutout from Pope Francis


Recommended Posts

Wednesday the NHL, NHLPA, and 17 other hockey organizations from around the world released a ?Declaration of Principles? for the hockey community. The statement advocates a positive culture to create the best game experience possible. The whole declaration was a group initiative created over a span of two years.


According to Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, the declaration has even been praised by Pope Francis.


:tweet: @reporterchris: Pope Francis recently sent the NHL a letter which praised hockey leaders for adopting a "Declaration of Principles."


To go along with the announcement, the league launched the website thisishockey.org, as well as a new TV spot Thank You Hockey, which will be airing on NBCSN in the US and Sportsnet in Canada throughout the 2017-18 season.
